I would, but I don't have a copy. I assumed Mediawiki would have it  
forever, at least in the page history. I'm a Mediawiki addict across  
several installs and employment venues, so I thought I pretty much  
knew how Mediawiki works, but this scenario has me stumped.

It wasn't just my contribution, someone else (I don't recall who),  
had staged a demo or two in the discusssion tab for a couple months.  
That history isn't visible to me at all.

I was sure I must be misremembering all of this, and I actually put  
it elsewhere, but it's even missing from my contributions history.  
The only record I have is the image I uploaded the same day is still  
out there, and my personal blog where I linked straight to that  
discussion page... which now denies any knowledge of my actions.

Very strange. Maybe I need to switch medications.  :)

No one did any database hackery to reload the HOWTOs from scratch or  
anything, did they?

Incidentally, I stumbled into this because I seem to be experiencing  
an off-by-one bug in my new glyph::dna project this week, so was  
going to refer back to that "Hello world" version and compare.
